We knew early on that Zach wasn't going to be around for Easter, conference, Dad's birthday, or my birthday, so I planned a trip down south for all of those big events. I had some training I wanted to get in on the Ironman course, so that was included in the plans.
I ran the whole course at the pace I want to run on race day and felt amazing! It was the most enjoyable run I had had in months!
Saturday we went to the Hurricane Easter Egg Hunt. Terran would pick a few candies then want to eat some. He hasn't become a die-hard egg hunter yet and I just cherished his non-selfish attitude about the whole thing.
After the hunt I went on my longest training ride for this race. Solo. 60 miles. That is the farthest I have ever ridden alone and it was a great ride. I totally bonked with just a few miles to go, but luckily I was right by the Maverick by Sand Hollow road and was able to grab a hot dog off their grill and some strawberry milk and make it back to my car! Hopefully that ride helped my body prep for race day!
That night we did another hunt with the Amy's and another neighbor. It was such a blast and Trujillo even busted out the pony and wagon, and their miniature horse.
